Good health never tasted so sweet!

Just making a few simple lifestyle changes for prediabetics could decrease your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by 40-70%! Health recommendations include:

  • Get screened or have regular checks every 6 to 12 months for your blood sugar levels, cholesterol, blood pressure, eyes, and kidneys to see if you’re at increased risk of or are developing diabetes.
  • Avoid sitting for long periods and get at least 30 minutes or more of moderate exercise daily.
  • Limit alcohol, sugar, trans and saturated fat intake and avoid smoking completely
